Google Nexus S Users Angry Over Smartphone Problems
Apparently the latest smartphone from the Google guys, namely the Samsung built Android 2.3 Gingerbread toting Nexus S is seeing numerous issues which are causing Nexus S users to become infuriated.
According to an article over on Brighthand by Jacqueline Emigh, the Nexus S is suffering from such problems as continuation of SMS messaging, balkiness during Bluetooth streaming, and forced bootups during voice calling.
Apparently one user has suggested that a recent over-the-air update from Google to Android 2.3.1 GRH78 may be responsible for voice call issues, and posted to Google’s help forum…“Since the update I have been experiencing random reboots at least once every two days. It’s driving me nuts. Anyone else having this issue?”
Apparently Google was fast to acknowledge the Nexus S bug that forces bootups during calls and posted…“Hey everyone, Thanks for your many useful reports. We are getting close to tracking down the root cause of the reboots during calls and are currently testing a fix to resolve the issue. I’ll come back to keep you informed once we know more.”
On the Bluetooth streaming issue with the Nexus S apparently an XDA-developers forum member posted…“It seems like I can only get about 10 to 15 minutes streaming audio before the phone becomes completely unresponsive, won’t power on or anything.” To which another user replied…“You should be thankful…I can’t get more then 10 sec without it being cut off and play again…for…10 sec.
And it’s a similar story when it comes to the continued SMS messaging issue with similar posts being made to the Google Code Forum.
However apparently these issues with the Nexus S are of a high priority to Google as they have placed a “medium priority” on the problems, thus it looks like Google will take their time in coming up with any fix for the Nexus S bugs or they may even wait for Android 2.4 Ice Cream Sandwich to make an appearance.
